A new point to point service is being offered in Dubbo that aims to help alleviate waiting times and create more jobs.
By the end of November Dubbo Radio Cabs will have two silver service vehicles in their fleet.
The new luxury cars can only be used through booking and cannot be hailed or used at taxi ranks.
Greg Collin from Dubbo Radio Cabs said they can be used for anything from special events to weddings and functions, to investors visiting the city.

The project has been in the pipeline for the past 18 months while the company was weighing up the pros and cons of bringing it to Dubbo.
But Mr Collin believes the silver service was something the city was lacking.
“With Dubbo growing it will be an asset for the town to have and will be able to be utilised on demand to assist with Dubbo taxi’s during peak times,” he said.
Mr Collin said having the extra cars will help free up taxi’s to do rank and hail.
“And during some parts of the day we’re (taxi drivers) are pushed when trains, planes and buses come in simultaneously. But by having the extra cars it will free up those cabs that do rank and hail work.”
Mr Collin believes up to 10 jobs could be created by adding the two cars.
“We’ll need at least two full-time people in each car with six part-time for weekend work and the such,” he said.
